Good location in a beautiful town. The rooms were fine and met all our needs-a/c,king bed, hair dryer. Breakfast was in the square. Staff were very pleasant and there is a coffee machine in the lobby if you need a quick cup( inexpensive) Would stay here again.

While this place has great potential. You can walk to nearly anywhere in the city from here. Great places for dining, cocktails, sightseeing, history and shopping are all a short walk away, as is the stunningly beautiful beach. The staff is pretty friendly for the most part, though if you have a car, expect to have to wait for 30-60... More

We stayed in Cefalu in September. By bus, we needed to walk a ways to get to the location of this hotel, but it has a charming appearance and the desk personnel were friendly. A small welcome room is attached to the check-in. We ate breakfast at a nearby cafe which was just average. We received room 110 which is... More

We loved Cefalu, and the staff at Hotel La Giara are friendly and fun. Felt totally relaxed and comfortable in this small, seaside village. The location, the sea, sunsets, coffee and food in the neighbouring bars/restaurants are good.

Great Hotel in the best place of Cefalu, really good location to visit the city. Beach is close by also. Breakfast is not at the hotel but in a café and is very average. Staff is very nice and helpful (helped out with our car). I recommend it. A/C was good but very loud, as the neighbors.

i stayed here in late June 2014. The room was large by European standards, but the bathroom was small. The hotel is conveniently located, just a short walk to the beach. There is no breakfast available at the hotel.

All in all this is a great hotel for Cefalu. We arrived by car, and as advertised, the had private secure parking down the street in their secured garage. The caveat is that you are located in the very heart of the old town of cefalu, so the staff has to valet the car for you and once you get... More

We stayed only one night. Room was ok and clean. AC was working. Parking in the garage was 12€ which is ok i guess since it is hard to find parking close to the hotel. Overall the staff is nice but nothing extra. If We were to visit this town again I would choose another hotel.

We stayed here in Feb. and were satisfied. It is an older hotel but clean with a great location in the "old town". Everything, including the beach, was just a short walk. Wonderful restaurants were just around the corner. The rooms were basic and the bathroom small but adequate. The wifi was spotty, however. Nice views on the rooftop terrace.... More

I would have given a 3 rating but when I politely asked to borrow a knife to cut open a canteloupe to take to the rooftop happy hour I was rudely screamed "NO" at. I've travelled many, places and most often the hotels go out of their way to help you...but not this place. In addition, I rarely complain about... More
